Niger: Tal National – „Claire” – beehype – Best Music from Around the World

Tal National

After the international success of their previous album, “Kaani”, released in 2013, Tal National are back with a sophomore release. It’s called “Zoy Zoy” and it carries on with their singular sound, drawing on a rich mixture of West-African cultures to create trance inducing rock music.

The first single off the album is “Claire”, an uplifting song with complexly intertwined guitar riffs over a hypnotic percussion. The accompanying video features the group’s vocalist, Massaoudo, singing in various locations in Niger’s capital, Niamey.
